Valerio, Geraldo. Half-Pint Pete the Pirate, 32 pgs. $16.99. Inside cover: “Half-Pint Pete the Pirate sailed half the seven seas with a patch hiding half his eyes. But with only half a treasure map, he’d never find his prize! Until one day when he meets Belle-a female pirate with an incomplete map of her own. When they combined their halves to make a whole, they find that working together is the best way to find buried treasure.” This is a cute story with a cute ending. It could be used in a unit on fractions or friendship. Other than that, we don’t have anything exciting or negative to say about it. Pre-K. EL (K-3). OPTIONAL. Reviewer: SL.
